Coming Soon: Miller's Draft

| 1 Comment

Rep. George Miller and his staff have been working hard during August recess. The chairman of the House education committee told Florida educators yesterday that he would be releasing a draft of NCLB bill soon, probably today. I checked the committee's Web site this morning and haven't found anything.

This post from an outspoken NCLB critic suggests that the draft is an attempt to garner support for the bill among educators, parents, and even students.

Stayed tuned to edweek.org and to this blog for updates.

NCLB was flawed to begin with. It started from the mistaken ideea that U.S. public schools were failing, when in fact U.S. public schools are actually doing quite well. U.S. public schools educate more students to a higher level than any educational system on the planet. While there is always room for, and a desire for, improvement, the idea of reform is misguided, unproven, and more politically motivated than by a sincere effort to improve education.
